This weekend German airline Lufthansa celebrated its 20th anniversary flying from Tallinn to Germany and beyond. It was on 29th March 1992 when a Lufthansa jet landed for the first time in Tallinn – a Boeing 737 flew three times a week from Frankfurt to Tallinn and then via Minsk back to Germany, the Tallinn Airport reported.
Tallinn was on of the first capitals which Lufthansa chose for its expansion to Eastern Europe in the 1990s, writes LETA.
With Sunday's midday take-off to Munich Lufthansa will double its daily frequencies from Tallinn to Munich and will connect the two cities twice a day with its most modern short-haul airplane, the Embraer 195 jet.
The new midday flight connects seamlessly into many destinations in Europe and Asia – the existing morning flight especially to the United States.
The frequencies will be increased from seven times a week to fourteen. With more than 35 million passengers a year, Munich is one of Europe's fastest growing hubs.
The originally launched Frankfurt route is operated daily with an evening departure and a modern Airbus A320 aircraft.
